Waste water treatment solutions specialist Suprafilt has made two key boardroom appointments as it gears up for further growth. Experienced non executive chairman Dave Roberts has been appointed to help it gear up for further significant growth, while Hannah Nolan takes on the role of Operations Director.
The Suprafilt board say the appointments form part of their vision to build a management structure capable of delivering and managing further growth and one that will ensure the firm takes full advantage of market opportunities in this very dynamic sector.
Suprafilt Managing Director Graeme Fielden says the appointments represent a key stage in the development of the business. He says: “These two appointments will help us gear up for expansion in the months ahead. David is a highly experienced chairman with a number of significant successes under his belt working with high growth organisations to help them focus on maintaining profitable growth.
“Hannah’s promotion to the board is a deserved reward for her professionalism, dedication and unflagging enthusiasm. She has built up a deep understanding of the business and the industry and will play a crucial role in ensuring we can take advantage of future opportunities.”
Suprafilt is primarily involved in the design, manufacture and installation of aeration systems for the waste water treatment sector. It includes United Utilities and Severn Trent Water as clients. The business has won a series of major projects across the UK over the last 12 months thanks to an innovative approach to the sector.
Roberts says: “Graeme and fellow director Jonathan Lord and the team have created a really successful business and, with new avenues opening up, Suprafilt has significant growth potential and that’s really exciting. My role as non-executive Chairman will be to help the team take the right steps.”
Nolan, who joined the Lancashire-based business in 2002, was appointed Operations Manager in 2006. She says: “Suprafilt is a successful growing business and with a great future. I am really looking forward to this new challenge. Recent contract wins all point to a very bright future. We are ambitious and confident we can win more large scale projects.””
